Cooper Equipment Rentals is opening its fourth Western Canada location and second in Edmonton, Alberta. CEO Darryl Cooper told RER the company hopes to open the new 8,640-square-foot branch just off Highway 16 on the west side of Edmonton by Nov. 1.

“Kyle Breen is the new branch manager for Edmonton West,” said Cooper. “Jason Rackel is the new branch manager in Edmonton East, which is the original 4-Way Equipment Rental branch, and Lee Briscoe has assumed the position of regional manager for Northern Alberta.”

Cooper Equipment Rentals, based in Mississauga, Ontario, has 26 branches, primarily in Ontario and Quebec. It entered the Alberta market earlier this year with the acquisition of 4-Way Equipment Rentals in Edmonton, and then added two more Alberta branches with the purchase of aerial rental specialist Alberta Lift.

Cooper Equipment Rental is No. 35 on the RER 100.
